(MULTI) (PDF) – Protection of wild pollinators in the EU | European Court of Auditors


In recent decades, wild pollinators in the EU have declined in abundance and diversity. In 2018, the Commission has made a move towards coordinating its approach to halting the decline of wild pollinators by launching the Pollinators Initiative. We found that this had little effect on halting the decline and that the initiative needed better management to achieve its objectives. In addition, the biodiversity and agricultural policies, and the pesticides legislation did not offer adequate measures for the protection of wild pollinators. We make recommendations to improve the protection of wild pollinators in the existing EU policies and legislation. ECA special report pursuant to Article 287(4), second subparagraph, TFEU.
